BlazBlue: Continuum Shift (playable)
λ-No.11-, commonly abbreviated as Lambda-11 is an imitation Murakumo Unit and Boundary Interface Prime Field Device with Saya as her base. Originally designed by Relius Clover, Lambda underwent a great deal of torture at the hands of scientists within the 5th Hierarchical City of Ibukido, and was eventually rescued by Iron Tager and Kokonoe who sealed her soul. After being killed by Yuuki Terumi while trying to save Ragna the Bloodedge, Lambda was revived inside the Embryo.
Lambda originally appeared in BlazBlue: Continuum Shift as a playable character, but was absent for BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma. She reappeared in its remake, BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Extend, and onward.
Lambda resembles Nu in nearly every way physically, except for her hair color, the tone of her skin, and her facial features. Lambda's hair is golden, similar to Noel's, her skin is a healthy light tan, and her eyes are wide open and bright.
Lambda's jumpsuit is identical to Nu's, but her cloak is very different. While it has the same collar as Nu's cloak, it has a golden piece of fabric resembling a necktie in place of the ring and talisman attached to Nu's collar. Unlike the one-piece cloak worn by Nu, Lambda's is split into 3 large folds, which are colored gold, black, and white. The two folds on the sides of her cloak are emblazoned with a large lambda letter and the text “No. 11” under it. Beneath that, in smaller text, is printed “MURAKUMO - UNIT ◄ idea DRIVE ► -2198-”.
Lambda's battle gear is completely identical to Nu's, except the color scheme is completely changed from shades of blue accented with green to black and purple accented with orange.
Silent and devoid of emotions, Lambda speaks in a very mechanical and detached manner, and is incapable of taking any kind of action without a direct command to do so.
Powers & Techniques
A bio-weapon created by Kokonoe.
An imitation of the ‘Murakumo' unit, built with the 11th Prime Field Device Tager retrieved during Ikaruga, combined with the soul of ν-No.13-, thought to have been lost at the Gates of Sheol. Furthermore, Kokonoe installed an IDEA Engine as a final resort and secret weapon against Terumi.
All of Lambda's memories deleted, Kokonoe uses her to carry out missions. That is, until she encountered Ragna, when ν-No.13-‘s memories began to resurface.
She is destroyed, protecting Ragna from Terumi's attack. That is when Ragna absorbs the IDEA Engine into himself.
